It's not an official announcement, but I trust TORn more than all other sites, blogs, and anonymous sources put together. While I'd still like to see an official announcement, this is the next best thing.

[url:35zuc5qk];post=252866;sb=post_latest_reply;so=DESC;[/url:35zuc5qk] (I think Xoanon broke the story there first, but it was also reflected in an update to one of their articles)

[b:35zuc5qk]Update[/b:35zuc5qk]: reports that Warner Bros. has confirmed this date. See the link in a below post.
Agreed. I can't see them beginning the shoot much in the Summer or before given the rate that the MGM situation is progressing at. PJ made a comment a while ago that if they could start filming by June they could still be done in time for 2011, but given the latest news I think the shoot will start, at earliest, sometime this autumn.
Plus, the film would have had to have been greenlit a while ago for them to shoot this summer. And I expect a big announcement when it's actually officially greenlit. And that day will be a day for partying on Tolkien and LOTR forums worldwide <img src='/images/smileys/bigsmile.gif' border='0' alt='Big Smile Smilie' />.
Yes, I trust TORn very much, too. This is good news, but it still means they probably won't start shooting next month.
With the Party Tree!!!! It'll be a night to remember!!
And i think everyone will know when the movie begins shooting. I remember there was a huge fuss when Jackson said he wasn't directing the Hobbit and GDT was. It was on the homepage of
2 years, 7 months, 23 days until december 21st (friday before christmas 2012).
Dont want to wait that long. Seems like for ever. <img src='/images/smileys/sad.gif' border='0' alt='Sad Smilie' /> <img src='/images/smileys/sad.gif' border='0' alt='Sad Smilie' />
There are plenty of great, or at least interesting movies due to come out between now and then, and I'm sure there will be ones that nobody sees coming. :mrgreen: Plus we have the books and the existing LOTR films to keep us happy, so it's not like we'll have nothing to do. <img src='/images/smileys/smile.gif' border='0' alt='Smile Smilie' />
My gardens looking pretty sad. :roll: :roll:
[url=]Warner Bros. has officially confirmed the date for Part 1: December 2012.[/url:1a5f3dim]
At least that's a bit of positive news <img src='/images/smileys/bigsmile.gif' border='0' alt='Big Smile Smilie' /> .

Uh-oh, let's hope it'll release before 12/21/12. That's the end of the world, remember. I want to see at least Hobbit 1 before I die, haha.
If it's released in the same slot as the LotR films (and King Kong and Avatar) it will be between two days and a week before the 21st. :mrgreen:
Thank Goddess. :lol:

HAHA!!!!!! I fear the same thing!!!!! well, its MUCH better than 2013...
oh...come on!another date...ha ha! :lol:
